This is pilot study to establish a rapid autopsy program in Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC) at the Indiana University Simon Comprehensive Cancer Center and outline the components necessary for tumor tissue collection.
The goal of this project to establish a rapid autopsy program in SCLC at the IUSCCC and outline the key components necessary for tumor tissue acquisition. This proposal is a collaboration between scientists, lung cancer physicians, pathologists, and the IUSCCC Translational Research Core. Tumor tissue collected will be used for protein and gene analysis and RNA, whole exome sequencing in addition to the establishment of SCLC. This research is part of a discovery project in which biological and molecular markers of SCLC will be identified.
